One day Jones Bones will get over his app getting shit on.
I hope I'm not there on that day cause reading the scorned woman comments you leave behind on every forum anytime our name comes up is pretty fucking sweet.
Today PANGU coalition bombed DBRB on a gate in a ~700 man local with 24-26 bombers, in one wave, all at the same time. Our tengu fleet sat there watching and laughing since they were bombing the gate and only 7 bombs were going to hit while drakes were all jumping out. We kinda went into :WTC: mode as 70 drakes died, but quickly returned into v0v mode without wondering too much more.
I formed a bomber fleet to bomb Makalu's sniper tornados and did a 2 angle warp with 3 squads (didn't have time to do 3rd angle) and killed pretty much his whole Tier3 fleet but was wondering how the fuck we got some of the bigger EHP targets down. We knew all Tornados were going to die from 14 bombs, but something didn't quite add up.
So off we went to look at logs, followed by some safespot bombing of a carrier, then multiple different bomb types bombing at the same time and basically concluded: BOMBS ARE BUGGED TO SHIT.
My first thought was to go bomb 319 undock where -A- carriers sit watching bombers do waves often lauging at them. My second thought was I really don't want to get my 80mil SP only subcaps trained character I use for bombing FC banned. My third thought was to find people we all love to shoot in Pandemic Legion.
My first action was to ask for Lenid Kalkin and Wrik Hoover to jump into carriers.

Hilarity ensued. And I got my explanation why some of the more retarded bomb runs by the SoCo have been so successful, of course -- having been in some of those fleets -- I don't think SoCo actually *knew* about this, they just went on patting their backs and admiring their killboards.
tl;dr The game being bugged is the only way the SoCo can get kills because
-A- is shit
Shadoo can you link the loss mail for the carrier?
Another pressing question, was the clone updated?
Aw yeah, look at that fuckin' solo kill.
The second-best part of this op was making pubbies think that I really was solo.
Well those are interesting kms. Wonder how long ccp will take to release a hotfix, in the winter?
This is sorta like having the old DD back.
Next time SoCo calls a CTA, I know which fleet I'm running with 5 wings and 5 squads per wing )))))
That RDN video must be using file footage
He really pulled the wool over some peoples eyes to get in though.
hey remember that time pl used that bomb exploit to bomb their own carriers
then remember before that when shadoo pwned a whole fleet of SOCO bombers wololol
LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE BAD @ EXPLOITING SOCO
My theory was they tried to do the TD adjustment, didn't like what they saw, and instead of actually fixing it just made them invulnerable, because you GET contact messages on missiles, they're just always 0 damage.
My theory is CCP is terrible at their job
My theory is
-A- is shit
I'm pretty sure it's what John Caffeine said.
True, I have raped history, but it has produced some beautiful offspring
To be fair Mittani your persona-of-choice kind of lends itself to the whole "GOONS ARE NAZI'S" thing.
The real question is, how long is it gonna take CCP to fix this? About as long as it has taken them to put firewall back in the game?
CCP sucks some times.
Once we start killing enemy carriers, CCP will have a bit more pressure to get something done.
Half the Raiden video is footage from some random shit in Tenal. Way to be relevant.
Using footage from a campaign where they lost a region after deciding they only wanted to offer token resistance seems appropriate for the current situation.
It doesn't matter where they got the footage from, its that it is okay footage (EVE's standards) of fights. The propaganda alliances design isn't designed to sway the opinions of people who are actually in-tune with the politics of EVE. It's designed to make their pilots feel better and the noobies out in empire think Raiden is doing well. It's also the reason AAA goes on and on about their killboard stats- to the average pilot it looks good.
Though for AAA's case I would take advantage of the fact that to the average noob it looks like AAA is a lot stronger than Goonswarm because of their systems held. When they lose all that space, well..

TEST and CFC would have come down to delve eventually, even if -A- and the SoCo woudnt have gotten involve. Just to stop the boardom and give their playerbase something to do/ make people log in. And this is much more action then gatecamping or roaming for 40 jumps and getting 4 targets.
And ofc they were S2N were doing better before. They only had to fight PL subcaps (and sometimes a few RA). Not gona get more into that as someone posted a real good escalation table a while back, describing the steps from the initial nulli vs Ra vs pl stage to the coalition fuck it now is.
(fuck im agreeing with Grath more and more, fuck this tread )
And no i dont think you will need to devide us to win. I wouldnt say you have already won just yet (its going to be a long summer i guess) but you will definatly take their and prob our space again. Do we care? not so much. Does S2N care? not so much eather (from what i hear). Will there be many GFs? probably. Will there be many deaths? for sure. But as grath posted, this is a good thing as it is makeing old people (like me) log in again.
Had AAA and pets not shown up, CFC would probably still be in their respective regions. IIRC TEST told them that they were keen on having this just be a TEST/PL thing and to run it themselves. If the CFC showed up, it would be for content (as you said) and content=fights. They wouldn't of gotten any, because it would be just Nulli and RA against the lot of them. PL and TEST were winning the war prior to that, the rest of the CFC would be farming IRC or jewing out about now.
I was having a feeling that removing firewall was intentional, basically to remove a lot of server load, not having to calculate the position of every missile in space anymore. But this bomber thing is game breaking. Hope it's something they can quickly hotfix.
